13 Oct Facebook Sexual Harassment Bot Compliant with Data Privacy Act
The developers of Gabbie, a Facebook messenger chatbot designed to help Filipino victims of sexual harassment and assault, recently assured in an interview that their tool is compliant with the Data Privacy Act of 2012.
A project of Gabriela, a women’s right s group in the Philippines, Gabbie is intended to educate victims and encourage them to report their cases to the authorities.
However, it has been pointed out that even if Gabbie is compliant with the country’s data privacy rules, how it protects user data is still dependent on the digital infrastructure of Facebook’s data storage and management practices.
